Use any flavor cake mix and complimentary flavor of pudding mix. For the glaze, use a complimentary flavor of powdered mix, such as lemonade for lemon, cocoa for chocolate, etc. Buy attractive coffee mugs which hold 1 1/2 cups water.
1 (18.5 ounce) box yellow cake mix
1 (3.4 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding mix
2 2/3 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup powdered lemonade mix
8 coffee mugs
Place dry cake mix and dry pudding mix into a large bowl and blend well with a whisk. This will be about 4 to 4 1/2 cups of dry mix and will make 8 mug cake mixes. Divide mixture into 8 small plastic bags (about 1/2 cup each). Place mixture into a corner of each bag and tie it there with a twist tie.
